Never Forget has a new look!

Three months ago, I found my cover image for Never Forget online after a Google Search - and it had no copyright. I believe thats important to state now, because the photographer has just come forward to claim the image after it was bought by another author. Luckily, after explaining the photographer understands there was no copyright on the image on the site I acquired it from and it's by the by.

I could have bargained with the photographer in question for a price to buy the image, but I have personal reasons that I won't disclose publicly for not doing that. So I set out to recreate the image.

It actually works, because when I mocked up the cover for the companion novel, Always Remember, the covers didn't match and I was worried the connection wouldn't be made. Now, however, they do match. *dances* so it's actually for the best. I did love the original cover but I love this just as much, so I hope you do too.

If you have a paperback edition - or you win one from the giveaway, then congratulations, you have a limited edition book ;)

Now... For the new cover.


What do we think?

  2. Why would you want to print your paperback at low res anyway? Internet images are low res. Print is a minimum of 300dpi. And whether there is a copyright present or not, images on the internet are the property of the photographer. Plain and simple.

    1. Because since I'm not unfortunate enough to have the funds to pay a cover designer, I have to do them myself and I'm still learning. Besides, there's nothing wrong with the paperbacks I've purchased at less than 300dpi. The image thing was a mistake and has been sorted between me and the photographer. I've learnt my lesson and it's done with, but my readers deserve to know the truth to why the cover changed.
